? here are a few. michele bachmann, joe wals alwe with polls moving their way, democrats are daring to dream of delivering them from evil. >>> finally, let me finish teac wanw s my farite watoe how e new pennsylvania voter photo law is stopping her from voting. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> back to "hardball." >>> back to "hardball." what do you do when your candidate israiling in the lls? well, you blame the pollsters. over the past several days right wing radio and television pundits have gone wild with the new republican talking thought, the polls are wrong. pay no attention to what you're seeing or what you're hearing, that obama is up. according to se on foxnd elsewherhels all in the president's back pocket and they can't be trusted, including fox's polls apparently. here is dick morris staggering even sean hannity on fox news this week. >> as he's at the moment in a bee hectwere osition. held today, romney would win by four or five points. i believe he would carry florida, ohio, virginia. i believe he would carry nevada. i believe he would carry pennsylvania
to michele bachmann to alan west, are they really feeling the heat? are they seeing the ground shift under them so they're beginning to think the tea party wave has crested? >> well, look, democrats want to use these figures bachmann, steve king, alan west, because they're huge targets and they raise a ton of money. they say the most incendiary things and they get democrats fired up. now, joe walsh is in trouble. he's got a tough district in northern chicago. and tammy duckworth is a pretty good candidate with a pretty good personal story. i think republicans sort of have a wash that one away. but michele bachmann has raised and spent $16 million during this campaign. more than any house member than the speaker boehner. she's had a huge fund-raising advantage. same thing with alan west down in florida. $10 million. are they targets, good for fund-raising for democrats? but when it comes down to it in the house races when you're raising that kind of money presidential campaign money. obviously she was a candidate.
michele bachmann look like a hippy. he is that far on the fridge. >> that's pretty far. >> pointing those things hout, i'm not sure he was prepared for that, but i was polite and calm, and i think that saying i was unladylike is a code word for that, you know, women shouldn't be strong and that we should be more deferential, and i think that's probably what he was getting at. >> well, you ought to be strong. you're the only thing between him and this crackpot getting into the united states senate. i wish you would get a little tougher. look at the things he stands for. he wants to get rid of medicare. and then he wants to abolish the minimum wage. there's a lot of people out there who got their first job with a minimum wage and needed it to get protection. he wants to get rid of student loans. i had student loans all through college. i got a fellowship i was offered in grad school. a lot of us couldn't go to quality schools if we didn't have that kind of help. what is he talking about saying we got to get rid of student loans and calling it stage three cancer? it wasn't that for me. what'
, gosh, she was mean and unladylike. i mean this is somebody who kind of makes michelle bachmann look like a hippie. >> wow. >> michele bachmann, hippie. >> i want to bring you in here and set the context, many people watching me feel like gosh, claire mccaskill seems much more reasonable and senatorial than her challenger todd akin, than the guy calling her all these names, ma some nistic games. in july he was up by five points. in august, she's now up by nine points, but the money may be coming back from republicans here. >> right. >> how do you make sense of a shift in the polls and republicans saying we're over this guy, done with him, pulling out, maybe not. >> because they're liars. they think they can hold on -- grab a senate seat an he's the one they will put their money back in. that's always been true. i said it the day they were pulling out. and if i were claire mcskas kill i would embrace the wild cat label, i'm a wild cat fighting for your family. i would be really proud of it. but you know, ma someny works with some and if he feels like if he kicks her again maybe he'll
seats in the house are being challenged. michele bachmann swept into office in 2010 with a 13-point lead. now she's only two points ahead of her opponent. allen west, nine-point lead in 2010 has turned into a statistical dead heat in 2012. congressman steve king held an impressive 33% lead in 2010, is now down to single digits. is this a rejection of their ideas and could lead to the country moving away from this extreme right philosophy in terms of a takeover by politics in washington? >> yes, if as president obama said, because he was right when he said that real power is not here in washington, you don't change washington from the inside, it does mean that people from the outside, it's not just about who gets elected. that's very important. and then people outside of washington have to keep the pressure on their members of congress to hold them accountable for what they said they were going to do. when we've seen people do that over the course of the last couple of years, that's the only time we've actually ever seen congress act that or coming to a fiscal cliff and over a deadline. y
michele bachmann told to act like a lady. these are ways of cutting down a female candidate and reminding the electorate that's a woman running. what are some of the extra challenges that women face running for office? >> here in lies the rub. we see more than ever a lot of younger women with the drive, the ambition, the passion and skills to run, but, you know, you're hard-pressed to find any talk about the real standards they're held to, which is really how they look, how they act. standards at that frankly men don't necessarily have to adhere to. we want more candid moments in the last presidential election, hillary clinton told a reporter she felt there was a double-standard. barack obama just had to pop out of bed, jump out of shower and throw on a suit and he was ready to go. she had a lot more prep work to be done before she was camera-ready. the bottom line is women are held to a different standard, and that can be tough. >> talk about running for office, the barack obama and hillary clinton thing. barack talked about that he wears one or two suits so he doesn't think about what t
'm strong and informed. he sometimes makes michele bachmann look like a hippy. >> does this bring back this whole war on women narrative that's not repful to the republicans? >> of course it does. i have two words for todd akin. he is idiot-like. it does. it sends a message to the broader public and certainly independent voters in missouri that the republican running there is prehistoric. it brings up issues that republicans don't want to talk about right now. we want to talk about economic issues and not the issues that todd aakin keeps dragging back in. >> some folks came out for him in recent days saying the republican establishment needs to get behind him. there's indications they're thinking about it. if they did that, would that be a big mistake? >> well, it's a strategy of necessity. he's the senate slot that could bring the majority to the republicans, so they don't have a choice now because he's in the race. they're trying to save him. this is a good example of what happens when you make the wrong bet in the primaries and elect the wrong people to represent your party in the p
!" -- "drink it!" michele bock men had just won the iowa straw vote-vote- michele bachmann had just won iowa sraw vote. it says "what did i do last week and?" "led the honeymoon commence." it is fun to have this levy elephant. this is one thing that drives me nuts. bloomberg and the city council voted that he was right and they outlawed big drinks. you have bloomberg floating down as mary compensating "drop it, chubs!" this is when donald trump endorsed mitt romney. he is saying "you had me at i don't care about poor pepole." "we must consider deep cuts to the $70 billion green defense budget." "and it was working so well." "strike the solar panels." this primary season was one of the most interesting because they did not want mitt romney. did they want to rick santorum? really? "something like this could make a lesser fella question his inevitability." this was the front-runner, mitt. steve is sort of right of center, would that be fair? he gave a great endorsement. a lot of people in the republican party really question the sky. he is in michigan. do you remember this? "it is good to be ba
for missing and exploited children, i mean, this is somebody that makes michele bachmann look like a hippy. >> good line, by the way, congratulations. >> he is very much in a group of people that would never be part of the compromise that we need to find to address the fiscal cliff. he would never be part of the group in the middle that actually figures out ways to solve these problems, that works across the aisle, is willing to be. he can say all he wants about a voting record, but it is absolutely uncon troe vermontable from 1 to 100, i am number 50 from liberal to conservative. that means impart of the middle that wants to work for compromises and do the right thing to move the country forward. todd is going to be part of the fringe caucus that wants to convince everyone that the whole issue is that the government is the enemy, and it's not the answer, government is not the answer but it's not the enemy. >> so senator, the congressman said you did vote with barack obama 98% of the time. is that an accurate number? >> depends which year, as you know, joe, some of these look at confirmati
palin. and she is saying, drink it! [laughter] this was drawn -- michele bachmann had just won the straw vote. and he is looking down and he has a tramp stamp. dear lord, what did i do last weekend? [laughter] and this was when the republicans took the house back. and this does let the honeymoon commence. i love the look on his face. this is one of the things that drives me nuts. the new york city council just voted that he was right and they outlawed big drinks, the big gulp. and i have a very poplins dropping it down and saying, drop it chubs. this was one of donald trump endorsed mitt romney. he is saying -- you had me at i do not care about poor people. [laughter] and going back to the president -- he says this is true -- he says we must consider these cuts to our $70 billion green defense budget. and president obama is saying, it was working so well. and the submarine saying -- strike the solar panels. if you look closely, it is the u.s.s. inconvenient truth. this primary season was one of the most exciting, most interesting because they did not want mitt romney. they wanted santoru
who had to fact-check michele bachmann. he said they would have to limit themselves to a quota of miss statements. he confessed that the sheer volume of untruths and stretching of the truth became too much to list. some include [ inaudible ] causes mental retardation and that jimmy carter caused the swine flu, and president obama's policies drove up grocery prices -- >> that was you with the $100,000 bar tab. >> stephanie: yeah. now someone that never have to be fact checked it's orly taitz in the house. live in studio. hi, orly. >> hi, good to be on your show. >> i told chris not to ruin your beautiful hair with the head phones phones. this looks like a thousand dollars ann romney t-shirt. it is? >> no, i got this in hawaii when i went to get president obama's birth certificate. >> stephanie: i don't mean to be rude, but might we see your birth certificate. [ inaudible ] [ laughter ] >> stephanie: orly i'm happy that things are not awkward between us since you threatened to sue me because i said you weren't a dentist. and by the way i didn't say that, one
